Telling a Story in a Single Picture

You've heard it before: A picture is worth a thousand words. By that standard, it would take a thousand photos to describe the late Towson University Photography Professor Sam Holden. Sam touched so many with his work, his teaching, and his unique approach to his art. In his honor, the Sam Holden Memorial Fund will provide financial support to promising photography students who strive to tell a story in a single frame.

Here’s how you can help:

A donation to the Sam Holden Memorial Fund will go directly to talented photography students, providing them with the support they need to earn their degree and be a voice from behind the lens.
